Donovan Johnson Resume

      Donovan Johnson is an internationally recognized pianist based in the United States. His musical style touches the young and the old, and goes beyond the boundaries of culture. Combining a unique mixture of Contemporary, New Age and Celtic musical styles, Donovan's music has a unique sound all its own.

Donovan began playing the piano at the age of two. Picking up melodies by ear, he began recreating songs and melodies that he heard on the radio and television, and it wasn't long before his parents decided to enroll him in formal piano lessons. Training would continue throughout Donovan's school years, and during this time he would perform twice on NBC television and at the Iowa State Fair before attending Waldorf College, where he would study music performance and composition.

Donovan moved to Omaha NE in 1997, and for several years played in various bands and musical acts regionally. He would also attend The University Of Nebraska at Omaha at this time, until 2003 when musical work began to sustain itself and Donovan became a full time musician. He took a job teaching at the SNJ Studio of music, performed regularly, and shortly after became the keyboardist at Unity Church Of Omaha.

In 2007 Donovan began recording his debut album, "Pieces Of Life." This album was a summary of songs and life experiences that had led Donovan to his current life experience. Finding much local success after the album's release, Donovan would go on to release three more recordings: "Winter Solstice: Celebrating The Season!" (2009) "Road To Home" (2010) and "October." (2011)
